Types of Airplane Accidents

Aviation litigation is complex and involves navigating through specified federal regulations, statutes and treaties. Our Dallas airplane accident attorney possesses the comprehensive knowledge of all applicable laws, capable of examining each of them and effectively applying them toward your case. However, successfully handling an aviation case requires an extensive experience with various types of aircraft and practical issues.

Gresham, P.C. is experienced in dealing with the following types of aviation accidents:

  • Commercial Airline Crashes – These kind of accidents can possibly result in the sudden and unexpected death of tens or even hundreds of people. When a crash involves a U.S. carrier or U.S.-related flight in general, the National Transportation Safety Board representatives will head the investigation with the assistance of the FAA and other industry experts. If you have been involved in a commercial airline accident, whether you sustained significant injuries or suffered the loss of a family member, it’s important to not sign anything given to you by anyone after the incident without consultation with a trusted lawyer. It is also a violation of federal law for an attorney to contact any of the crash victim’s family members by any means of communication.
  • Small plane/general aviation crashes – These type of accidents commonly occur during interstate flights, may involve pilots and passengers who live in various states, and often deals with maintenance facilities and manufacturers located in different states.
  • Helicopter Accidents – Compared to the capabilities of an aircraft, helicopters possess complex rotor systems which are governed by one or more engines and a convoluted set of gear boxes and shafts which are all interconnected. It takes years of helicopter flight experience, an in-depth understanding of helicopter maintenance and knowledge of aerodynamics to pilot such a craft.
